Kalber Memorial Scholarship at Xavier. Eric was a Xavier grad who tragically lost his life several years back and this show has been a major "must attend" for me, as I am also a Xavier grad (class of '77), and very much appreciate the significance of the cause, and the message of the meaning of Eric's life that his family has strived to spread the word about in the years that this show has been in existence (I think this is something like the 12th or 13th annual EJK show or so). The Xavier High School Classic Car Club (https://www.xavierhighschool.org/student-life/clubs-activities/classic-car-club) has also been a major force in recent years toward making this great car show happen, and we tip our hat sincerely to them as well.

She also enjoyed planning the car cruises held at Marty’s restaurant in Westbrook and the Labor Day Cruise held at the Elks Club in Westbrook…”). Cathy requested that we help get this notice publicized within the local Shoreline-area antique auto hobby scene, so I would like to quote directly from Cathy’s note of 8/24/2019: “…We, The Shoreline Recycled Teenage Cruisers of which Lucille was President, were planning a Memorial Cruise for her. The date was to be October 2 with a rain date of October 9 at Panera Bread here in Guilford. Because of unforeseen circumstances, it is being rescheduled to May 6, 2020 with a rain date of May 13, 2020, at Panera Bread, 1919 Boston Post Road, Guilford. The Cruise will be held 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Rockin’ Richard will be our DJ. Food and indoor restrooms available. Trophies, a 50/50 Raffle, goodie bag items, too!  Any questions can be directed to me at 203-453-9453. Thanks very much for your help… Cathy…”…Thanks very much, Cathy! Though I did not know Lucille Sharp, I was very well aware of the huge role she played for many years in organizing our local Shoreline-area old car hobby scene! I definitely attended many of the great old “Marty’s of Westbrook” cruises thru the years, often taking my kids with me, when they were little—always good times! What a wonderful thing that Cathy Stewart and her fellow Shoreline Recycled Teenage Cruisers car club members are doing to help remember Lucille!...

In years-passed, the CT Seaport Car Club has run a fantastic antique car show around this time of the year at Boothe; the event listing that we recently ran across on their Coming Events page (https://www.ctseaportcarclub.com/carshows.htm), however, seems rather sparse. We’ll assume that more details are coming… SCREEN SHOT OF LISTING (as seen on the Coming Events page of our friends the CT Seaport Car Club): https://scontent-den4-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/89030086_2811740008916163_4618628785816731648_n.jpg?_nc_cat=103&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=2nhVgbIs1KkAX-QK2Gu&_nc_ht=scontent-den4-1.xx&oh=880697ac0a5efeebcdcecf4f1d5c17b8&oe=5E916AA7 … *4/1/2020 UPDATES – The following was posted onFacebook, posting date March 4th, 2020 by Alex Dragone (https://www.facebook.com/alex.dragone.7): “…Fairfield County Region Horseless Carriage Club Spring Fling at Boothe Park!... A REAL OLD TIME CAR SHOW!... In the early days of antique car collecting there were a few antique car clubs in the United States that were considered the elite that included some of the greatest collectors that our hobby would ever see with some of the greatest cars in the world. One such club and region started in the 1940's was the Fairfield County Region of the Horseless Carriage Club located here in Connecticut that many knew and belonged to even if they weren't from the area. Great collectors such as James Melton, Henry Austin Clark Jr., David Tunick, Louis Biondi, Dr. John Miller, Gardner King, Peter Helck, Ralph Buckley and many more would attend the Fairfield County Region's events. A couple of the best events were held by this club, most notably, James Melton's meet at the Fairfield Hunt Club in Fairfield, Connecticut and the Spring Meet in Ridgefield, Connecticut that was held for many years. Over the past 20-30 years this region has lost many of its great members and many of the great cars that accompanied them so it has slowly lost its spark… TODAY, the Fairfield County Region is still here after 69 years and we are slowly coming back with many new great cars and young members. We often hear stories from people scattered throughout the country, "remember the old Ridgefield meet in Connecticut?" Shenton King, grandson of the late Gardner King, and I have been working to bring the once greatest region of the HCCA back to its former glory! With that being said, we are proud to announce that we are finally, after many years, bringing back our "Spring Meet" this time located at Boothe Memorial Park in Stratford, Connecticut. Boothe Memorial Park (circa 1840) is a wonderful park remodeled by the Boothe Brothers on the banks of the Housatonic River in 1914. It houses many early historic buildings as well as many early New England artifacts that the brothers collected throughout their lives. It's said to be the earliest homestead in America, since it sits on the foundations of a 1663 house and has been continuously occupied. It even features a working blacksmith shop which will be open and in use on the day of the show and a running toy train collection that is great fun for kids… This will be a good old time car show that we want to have the feel of the early days of collecting. We will also have a small swap meet on the field for those individuals who want to sell some old car and motorcycle parts as well as automobilia. Games such as "Who can crank and start their car the fastest", obstacle courses and even the teeter totter will be in use for those who want to balance their early car! This will be a show that you do not want to miss! Open to the public and open to cars 1970 and older! Pre-WWII motorcycles are welcome as well. Ribbons and special awards will be given out. If you have any questions, contact me today. Fun for family and friends!... Date: May 17, 2020 at 9am… - Alex Dragone…”… webmaster's note – I attended one of those old Ridgefield meets many, many years ago, with old car buddy Phil Hamilton, and I remember it being a positively amazing experience. VERY cool to hear that its tradition and “vibe” are going to be re-created this year at nearby Boothe Park in Stratford! Hope I can make it!... FLYER – Here’s a link to a flyer posted on the HCCA web site for this event, that I think more or less contains all of the above info: https://www.hcca.org/events/May-17-2020/flyer.pdf … (this event was added to this calendar as of 3/12/2020; a slight revision to the name of the event, plus a significant amount of additional event info was added to this listing as of 4/1/2020)

Bring your family and friends, show your ride and enjoy the festival… Vehicles need to prior to 9 a.m. due to road closure for the road race… Make plans to see a variety of hot rods, classics, muscle cars, and antique vehicles under the banner of the Branford festival and listen to those golden oldies spun by D.J. Dennis Nardella from Nardella’s Music… We have room for about 50 vehicles and will provide dash plaques. trophies will be awarded to specific categories prior to the official close of the show, which will be at noon; however, you are welcome to keep your vehicle on display and enjoy our festival. entry fee is a modest $10 as in previous years…. Contact Car Show Chair William Raccio by e-mail at: wraccio@outlook.com ...”… webmaster’s note – The Branford Festival’s Classic Car Cruise that is traditionally held on Sunday morning of Festival Weekend is always a fun & low-key event, and without a long time commitment—typically you’re out of there by around noon time, and you have the whole rest of the day to do other stuff. The advice to get there EARLY is very important, since the Branford Road Race happens the same morning, and a lot of the roads surrounding the Branford Green get closed down for the race (the Classic Car Cruise is held in the Rear Green area, that’s accessed off of South Main Street). Thanks as always, to hard working Branford Festival Classic Car Cruise Chairman Bill Raccio for all he does to allow this wonderful local car enthusiast event to happen!...

IMPORTANT: Since the world of Cruise Night listings seems to be especially filled with old, out-of-date information--which has, on occasion, led to frustrating drives to non-existent cruises (we speak from direct personal experience!)--we've decided to do our best to only list confirmed listings (though we still urge you to call ahead before making any long trips, since we cannot guarantee anything), which we'll clearly highlight with a noticeable color--we have been alternating red and fuchsia in recent years to highlight the most recent years' listings. *11/12/2019 UPDATE - back to FUCHSIA for the new 2020 listings!!... Anyway, now that it's the New Year, if you have any confirmed 2019 cruise event listings, please send us yours--especially those Shoreline-oriented, for inclusion here--Thanks!... Please do be very careful to note that some of last year's 2019 listings are still here--we have NO INFORMATION about whether or not the 2018 listings are still valid or not, but we are leaving them in place for now, in case they might be useful for reference/who to contact to request 2020 info from, etc... Finally, when you see a listing prefaced with (old listing), that means it's from 2018 or earlier--in other words, really old, and probably unreliable info...
